Clarins's New Melting Honey Hot Stones Massage

blog-clarins-massage-Galets-Miel[1].jpgIt started on a trip to Greece at the age of 15. An older girl I was traveling with had a bottle of Clarins’ Eau Dynamisante fragrance and it smelled so fresh and clean and gorgeous that I immediately fell in love with the brand. To this day, my bathroom is still overflowing with Clarins products—from their Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, which completely revived my winter skin, to their Spray Oil Sunscreen, which a friend of mine says “makes your soul glow.” Of course, W’s beauty department is well aware of my obsession, and consequently when Clarins introduced their new Melting Honey Hot Stones Massage, our Associate Beauty Editor Christina Han was gracious enough to let me to be the guinea pig. It didn’t disappoint. Unlike traditional hot-rock massages which use basalt stones, this treatment employs marble and slate iterations that are cut into five different shapes that compliment various parts of the body. It also includes a proprietary honey gel that evolves over the stretch of the session from a rich creamy texture to a fluid oil to a milky emulsion that leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth and rejuvenated. Needless to say, it wasn’t easy peeling myself out of the plush, heated table once the heavenly experience was over. ($275 at Clarins Skin Spa, 1061 Madison Ave.; 212-734-6100)
